What people are saying about Central Greece

This was an amazing tour! Our guide Theodore 'Teddy' was amazing. He got the group interacting, he was fun cheeky - in a good way, and just made this the absolute best experience we had in Greece. Teddy's knowledge of Greek history was incredible, he knew so much and made it really fun to learn. EVERYTHING...COMES...FROM...GREECE!!! I would highly recommend the tour, the ruin was fantastic at sunset, and the sunset itself was breathtaking. If you are lucky enough to get Teddy as your guide then the whole experience will be 100% better. Also, a shout out to Alex the driver who was also really lovely and professional. His driving was very good and very safe, in a city where driving terrifies me!!!

We had the best experience! Our driver, Antoni, was patient, accommodating, flexible, and showed us the best of Meteora! He stopped at all the great viewpoints and gave us the option to visit more than one monastery. The drive is so challenging but our ride was comfortable and we didn't even notice. We had so much fun and we slept the entire way back.

The boat cruise was fun. There was drinks and we got a delicious buffet meal. We spent a little time on the islands. The staff was kid and accommodating. I would highly recommend if you are looking for something to do in Athens.

Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and told us many stories about the history of not only the sites we visited, but also about ancient and modern Greece. Also, he had a great sense of humor. Our group loved this tour.

Beautiful views, and very informative! Learned a lot and loved all of it
